    also received similar mail

    Hi,
    I also received a similar mail on 360.yahoo.com and I was referred to Tranex Courier Services Nigeria for completing formalities for receiving my winnings by DD. Fraud isn't it?

    Yes, it is fraud.

    It is an advanced fee fraud, or a 419 scam.

    Once you respond to them, there will be fees associated with the "money", transfer fees, legal fees, demurral fees, etc. and there is no big pay off.

    They just take your money and run.

    DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR PERSONAL BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION.
    Or any other personal details.

    They will want you to send the money Western Union or Money Gram which is untraceable. Even the names and ID's they use are forged.

    Read more on the site, especially the stickies and it will explain more about these types of frauds.

    Scam Internet Promo

    Reposted from a guest post with a real email address.
    Please for future references of any Glo promo, kindly contact the Glo customer care at [customercare@gloworld.com]. also be weary of any website that advertises Glo promos, if it's not the official website then its most likely a scam. Glo official website is www.gloworld.com

    Scam on mobile phone

    hi my friend just got a SMS on his phone saying "Urgent email glo telecommunication regarding Congratulation !!! recieved on 29/01/2009 03:47pm. Attachments: 0 totalling 3.5 kb"
    the sender came up as 333, which confused him and he called the number back and it rang +61430005333 (we are in Australia so the +61 is our extension)
    it answered with a recorded message which was the same as the text in the first post saying he had won money etc.
    I didn't listen to the whole message as I am not sure how much the phone call would actually be charging him, hoping it's not a lot...
    But obviously this scam is trying to rope more people in using mobile (cellular) phones so I'm wondering if anyone knows of any course of action that can be taken to someone shutting down the number they use??
    Any ideas???

    Report to the phone company? If the number is a scam then it's got to be an abuse of the terms of service so the phone company should shut that number down.
